Job Description: 

We are a fast-paced, entrepreneurial, and innovative multi-national import/export/trading company. We have 8 divisions worldwide that handle fruits & vegetables across 65+ countries. Our company has been featured three times in the INC 5000’s annual list of fastest growing companies (2017 Inc 5000 #923, 2019 Inc 5000 #1587 & 2020 Inc 5000 #1899)!

When you join Terra Exports, you become a member of our global team of thinkers, innovators, dreamers and doers who are disrupting the global fresh produce industry. But working at Terra Exports is about more than being disruptors. It’s about having a say in and improving the process. We start at the ground level – literally – with the growth of the product at the farm level, and we manage the process all the way up through distribution channels, up into the end user, the consumer.

We pride ourselves on our products arriving fresh and damage free and we are there every step of the way, working alongside our suppliers and customers who share in our common goal.

To expand our commercial team in the US, we are currently looking for a Grapes & Citrus Import Category Manager.

We have multiple relationships with grapes & citrus growers in South America & Europe, and we are looking to start importing these fruits into the USA.

You must have at least 1 year of experience in selling imported grapes & citrus to both retailers and wholesalers in the US. 

You must have existing relationships with retailers in the US.

This position has huge growth opportunity. You are starting a new category at Terra Exports’ USA division, and as the division grows, you could potentially take a leadership role within the division.

While you may work from home depending on your location, your ability to visit customers, attend expos, and visit our other Terra Exports divisions around the world is very important.

While this position reports to our CEO, it is extremely important that you are self-motivated and do not require constant supervision or micro-managing.

While we are very technology-oriented and use WhatsApp significantly companywide, talking on the phone every single day with our team, growers, service providers, and customers is exceptionally important.

You must understand that in international trade the 9-to-5 mentality is merely an aspiration that rarely materializes. It is important that you are readily available when opportunity comes knocking.

You must fully embrace our core values:

  • Be self motivated
  • Provide excellent service – don’t be an asshole!
  • Take quick action
  • Be a team player
  • Understand the value of reputation

A competitive base salary is offered, plus a commission based on sales goals.

Our company is an Equal Opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, national origin, age, sex, religion, disability, sexual orientation, marital status, veteran status, gender identity or expression, or any other basis protected by local, state or federal law.

This policy applies with regard to all aspects of one’s employment, including hiring, transfer, promotion, compensation, eligibility for benefits and termination.
